This is a cookbook that I ordered after eating a meal with my family in a Middle Eastern restaurant that serves homemade, delicious foods. I'd never tasted falafel, fatoush, and many of the other foods they had to offer. I was so impressed with it all that I wanted to try to make some of these foods myself and so I ordered The Middle Eastern Cookbook. It has a good variety of some of the most popular foods of the area and each recipe is notated with the country of origin and has a picture of the flag of that country by the recipe. Many of the recipes are shown in beautiful color photographs.

These are not extremely difficult things to make. Some of the ingredients might be harder to find if you cannot find a specialty store, but substitutes are usually given if the original can't be found. Maria Khalife gives a good introduction to each section, such as Chicken, and tells about some of the foods made with chicken. Appetizers, Beef, Chicken, Lamb, Vegetable dishes, Desserts are the main categories of foods.

The only complaint about this book is the index. As a former retrospective indexer, the index in a book is very important to me. I was looking for a couple of things to make and couldn't find them in the index. I started going through the book page-by-page and found the recipes that way. If you're interested in trying some Middle Eastern cooking, this is a good cookbook to start with.

Format: Paperback
The cuisine of the Middle East reflects centuries of infusions from a multitude of cultures that make up this ancient part of the world, including those culinary influences of the Greeks, the Romans, the Asians, and others who at one time or another impacted upon the nations and cultures of the Middle East. In "The Middle Eastern Cookbook", Maria Khalife (a celebrity chef in the Arab world and founder of the Soufra Daimeh Food Network -- the first Arab food television channel) has compiled more than 120 traditional recipes drawn from the entire Middle East including the countries and cultures of Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen. All of these showcased recipes have been adapted to western kitchens and use readily available ingredients for American cooks. From Aish bel lahm (Bread with Meat) from Saudi Arabia; to Warak inab bil zeit (Stuffed Vine Leaves) from Lebanon; to Dajaj salona (Chicken with Vegetables) from Bahrain; to Kebab al rubyan (Shrimp Balls) from Kuwait, "The Middle Eastern Cookbook" is a profusely illustrated and enthusiastically recommended addition to personal, professional, and community library international cookbook collections!

A must have cook book for all cooks. The book includes foods of the Middle East including the flag and countries these recipes that country is best known for.

The Author, Maria Khalife did a superb job bringing foods of the Middle we all know and love to our table, recipies I grew up with and and more. It is a culunary journey of foods of the Middle Eastern world all in one book. Page after page the book was well thought out, easy to understand and filled with mouth watering photos. Included is a glossary with descriptions of ingredients used in the Middle East. I am planning to purchase more copies of this book for each of my three daughters, I am keeping this one.

This was a birthday gift for my sister who's been trying to cook
middle eastern dishes for her palestinian husband and turns out
it was a great gift for BOTH of them. The instructions were easy
to understand; big colorful photos and she was able to follow
many of the recipes easily and learned new twists on some
dishes she's already used to preparing.
